My Gateway m-7315u keyboard is not working correctly


Has there been a spill? May be a hardware failure? Try re-installing driver at: http://support.gateway.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?partNumber=M-7315u Are ALL the Windows and Gateway Updates installed? May be a "fix" in the Gateway drivers list.

My gateway is stuck in configure 3 of 3 at start up


Turn on your computer. If your computer is already on, then reboot it. You need to see the initial display screen to get into the BIOS. Press the F1 key immediately in one second intervals when you see the initial screen displaying the BIOS provider information. The majority of Gateway computers use the F1 key. If, for some reason this does not work, then use the F2. All of Gateway's desktops use the F1 or F2 keys. this will vary depending on your computer and operating system Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart. Hope this helps.

Hi,
The way to restore Gateways is to hold down the ALT Key andrepeatedly hitting f10 then it should bring you to a boot sequence screen thenchoose the HDD and then hold down ALT and repeatedly hit f10 again that shouldprompt the restore feature for gateway. If that doesn't work,the only way to doit is to boot into windows and run the Recovery program.

ALL DATA WILL BE ERASEDON YOUR HARD DRIVE IF YOU PROCEED. YOU WILL NEED TO ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE THEPOWER ADAPTER PLUGGED IN. DO NOT SWITCH OFF OR RESTART YOUR COMPUTER DURINGTHIS PROCESS.

Hope this helps,

If you have access to an external display, plug the VGA output from your laptop into it to ensure the laptop is OK.
If the laptop is OK and it is the laptops screen that is faulty, check ebay for a replacement screen.
Having an LCD display with a VGA input is a sure way to find out where your fault lies.
If the VGA screen does not work, then maybe the laptops display driver is corrupt. Go onto the Gateway web site and down load a fresh driver with a working laptop and copy the driver onto a USB Memory stick, set your laptop to boot from USB and load the driver into your system.
If that doesn't work, take it to a repair shop for an estimate of just look on ebay for another one and copy your files to the new one.
